(1871 - 1897)

An Old Harrovian, Clement Harris studied with the great pianist Clara Schumann in Frankfurt and became an intimate of Siegfried Wagner, joining him in an attempt to escape the influence of the latter’s father, Richard Wagner. A friend of Oscar Wilde in London, he died in 1897 in Epirus, after joining the Greeks in their war against Turkey.

Orchestral Music

Harris’s symphonic poem based on Milton’s Paradise Lost was planned during his voyage to the Far East with Siegfried Wagner in 1892 and owes much to Schumann and Brahms.
